Good place to work

I worked at HEE in London for almost 20 years. I enjoyed my time there and only left because I moved out of London and did not want to travel almost 2 hours each way to work every day. The WFH choice was not available to my grade at the time and felt I needed to concentrate on my young daughter and would not have been able to do this due to the added travel time. The working environment is very supportive and development is widely encouraged. My managers were great and very approachable. I made some great lifelong friends there too.

Pros

Staff benefits (cycle to work scheme)

Cons

Needed some more flexibility for grade 5 and below

Amazing team and culture

The team I work in is simply amazing. Regardless of position everyone comes together and supports each other. There is always someone willing to help out if you have a problem, the supportive culture is unlike anywhere else I’ve worked. They take the values to heart and embody them on a daily basis.

Pros

Great team, fantastic work/life balance, knowledge sharing. I could go on

Cons

None

The role ended due to lockdown. There was little training, just thrown in the deep end from day one. Most of the employees are unhappy would not recommend

Cons

Little training

Awesome IF you have a good manager

It is public sector so salary could be better but is contemporary with other public sector organisations. The culture is good overall but alot comes down to whether or not you have a good manager as so much is down to their discretion. There are loads of training opportunities but getting permission for secondments is hard and there are very few band 6 roles compared to band 5s so most people leave after then.In COVID our jobs are secure and they are promoting wellbeing but disabilities are poorly supported and mental health is not even discussed.

Pros

Flexible Working.

Cons

The clinical staff think they are "better" than the admin staff, You are screwed if you have a bad manager.

Admin Role

Unorganised and was going through change when I started. There was not enough work once I started and on my first day it was announced the team was going to go through redundancies. Treat people unfairly.

Bullying culture, high stress levels

Management pass the buck of responsibility when they do not know the answer to things, Bullying is the order of the day, Being stressed will happen daily Job starts of well, then stress gets to you Unless you are with a certain crowd, promotion is impossible, On the other hand, it has been known for someone to interview for a job 4 times before they get it.

Nice and friendly place to work

The co-workers were mostly young and unexperienced people who can gain an experience by training-through-work. The management staff is very helpful and understanding.

Pros

Nice atmosphere

Cons

Difficult to be promoted

Communications experience with NHS

I managed the marketing communications for the Thames Valley area for Health Education England, who support the delivery of excellent healthcare and health improvement to the patients and public of England. Managed all internal and external communications including a major rebranding project which included updating the visual identity of the organisation, reinforcing the new brand values and updating all content for the new website.

Hostile working environment

I conducted many advisory meetings, setting up meetings and taking minutes. There was no collaborative working and felt the working environment was hostile.

If you must

The bullying culture is too prevelant. There is a lot of favouritism and nepotism all the way to management. You must be strong willed to work here. There is also a hierarchy culture where the senior management doesn’t appreciate the work done by the staff under them.

Cons

Flexi workinf

No flexibility

I spent 4 months working for the Assessments team as a part time administrator. There is low morale amongst the team, as some staff were directed into the role following a structure redesign so didn't really want to be there. The working hours and travel were not made clear, even though I specified the hours I was limited to at interview and at the point of job offer. The hours were revealed during week 2 of being in the role. I had to find another job, so HEE wasted my time and their own as they had to re-recruit to the vacancy I left behind. No career progression, as HEE staff are not privy to NHS internal job opportunities. Unfriendly atmosphere within the team.

Pros

Met some lovely colleagues

Cons

Hours are subject to change, and require someone who can be flexible

Good culture in workplace

There is a very support culture within this organisation. I work in Workforce Development which practices a "high trust" eway of working, in that they enable you to be autonomous in your work with the expectation that you will highlight any problems.

Pros

Good working practices

Cons

Sometimes lots of demanding work

Hard working environment

This is a great place to work but the work is hard, fast and furious and you must be 100% committed to delivering to tight deadlines and timescales. Its a rewarding job with regular praise, reassessment and review.

Pros

easy commutable with free parking

Cons

occasional long hours

Great fun place to work

Health Education England is a great place to work. All of the staff are very friendly and helpful. I have worked here for four months and have enjoyed my experience very much. No day is the same and I enjoy the variety of tasks that I am asked to do. I have learnt to use E-portfolio and intrepid systems but I still have so much to learn in these systems. The managers are great to work for and very approachable and open to new ideas and suggestions.

Pros

Friendly staff

Cons

Alot of the staff work from home so can't always get an answer right away

Continuous change taking its toll

During my years at HEE I was always satisfied with management, the culture and opportunities to develop and progress. Constant and sometimes ill thought out change have unfortunately taken their toll on the culture within the organisation, making it a less happy place to be and often very challenging environment.

A rewarding place to work

I really enjoyed working at HEE. The work was rewarding and challenging and there was a supportive environment but that could be different within different teams. The main down side was the constant organisational restructuring.
